Decline in production overall or production "High on Fire"-wise?

High On Fire-wise. Sure it sounds all clean and modern and hi-fi and whoop-di-do, but the atmosphere/vibe is drastically changed. The colors are different, if I may sound a little bit hippy

Well he sounds a hell of a lot better with HoF than Metallica... Pike does a bunch of wierd shit to fill in empty space all of the time so it doesn't sound nearly as dry as it should.
